A recently elected Congresswoman from Colorado, Lauren Boebert, who is against local shutdown orders is planning to hold a “funeral” for a dead turkey, as a means to bypass Colorado’s holiday restrictions.
Boebert has protested against lockdown restrictions in the past, Fox News reported. The congresswoman has called out Colorado’s restrictions on personal gatherings, while pointing out that “life-rite” gatherings allow for many more people to attend.

“In Colorado, Thanksgiving is limited to 10 people, but funeral are limited to 30,” Boebert explained. “So I’m going to have a peaceful funeral for a turkey and have about 30 people at my house.”
